Frog Bar Mitzvah

In response to my quest for Jewish-themed spam, Shabot 6000 reader, Tova, forwarded me the best Jewish spam yet:

From: "Cecil"
Subject: frog bar mitzvah

Other than a pitch for the stock symbol MAKU.ob, there was nothing of relevance in the e-mail body itself, except for the odd recurring sentence, "He grew up with blacks". I wonder if this statement refers to the Frog Bar Mitzvah Boy?

UPDATE: I just received another stock spam e-mail for CNHC.PK with the Subject "my hebrew". Is this just a coincidence, or is there a deliberate effort out there to target folks with known Jewish affiliation by sending contextually relevant Subject headers?
